Emre Can Apologises For 'Degrading' Comments After Ronaldo Red-Card

Making his first appearance back in Spain since his summer move from Real Madrid to Juve, Ronaldo left the field in tears when he was shown a red card by Brych - following consultation with assistant Marco Fritz - after appearing to grab defender Jeison Murillo's hair shortly before the half-hour mark.

It was an eventful Champions League debut for Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus colours.

The furor surrounding Ronaldo's red card likely will blow over by next month when he returns to Manchester United's stadium, Old Trafford, for the first time as a Juventus player.

The Portugal talisman will have to serve a mandatory one-game ban when Juve face Young Boys on October 2.

Juventus midfielder Emre Can has apologised for his "we're not women" comments made in the aftermath of Cristiano Ronaldo's red card against Valencia on Tuesday.

But sources say it is unlikely the Portugal star will be hit with a two or three-game suspension, meaning he will be available to play at Old Trafford on October 23 and in the return match in Turin on November 7.

Unlike the Premier League, the Champions League's policy of red cards is an immediate one match suspension plus up to a further two games which is decided by a panel on a case-by-case basis.

UEFA has the power to extend Ronaldo's ban if they deem his conduct to be violent.

"It's very harsh. I think if you have seen the pictures, you'll have seen that it's incomprehensible", Matuidi said.

Despite his dismissal from the game, his Italian League outfit still went ahead to win the clash with Miralem Pjanic scoring twice from the spot.
